Tornado touches down in Brandon
A tornado touched down on the south edge of Brandon Tuesday afternoon.
A car lot and a trailer park were damaged. Windows were broken and trees uprooted, but there don't appear to have been any injuries.
"We have a report from a corner store in that area where plate-glass doors were smashed, and some shingles taken off the roof of the building, van and truck windows being smashed by debris. They actually watched the funnel cloud coming, and then dived inside on the floor when it touched down just outside the store," said meteorologist Jay Anderson.
Environment Canada says it was a category F-0 twister, which is the weakest category of tornado.
Severe thunderstorms continue to make their way across southern Manitoba. Meteorologists say more tornadoes are a possibility.
